Gambhir given one match ban.

Labels: , , , , , ,

So it says all. Gautam Gambhir has been slapped a one test match ban for elbowing Shane Watson in the 3rd match of Border - Gavaskar test series. Though the provoker in this incident, Shane Watson was only fined 10 % of his match fees by the match referee Chris Broad. It was very unfortunate on the part of Gautam Gambhir. But as far as I know the reason behind this ban is because this was the first time Gambhir was penalized in his test cricket career and therefore it was a lesson for him so that he doesn't cross his limits again.

Gambhir has appealed against his ban recently. I feel that Sunil Gavaskar was right when he said that mostly sub-continent players are punished even if their counterparts equally deserve to be punished.

Now what would be interesting to see would be if Gambhir was successful in his appeal or not.
